Tori Monaco and Berkley Cade are a pair of lovebirds that met the way most people nowadays find each other: through the internet. Cade, a member of the Air Force, and Monaco, a theater director, started talking and instantly felt a connection. In two short days of nonstop chatter, they just had to meet in real life.

The couple faced one big problem: distance. Cade was stationed in San Angelo, Texas, while Monaco was studying at the University of Texas, Austin. The drive takes around roughly 4 hours. Cade, giddy with the thought of meeting someone new, drove through the night. She had a lingering fear “she might be a serial killer” but those fears were¬†quickly put to bed.
